no, that happens a lot.. my wig hair falls out on my wig.

it's just some of the strands aren't tied as tight onto the net as others so those tend to fall out.. don't worry, you won't end up with just a net. lol. but if it becomes excessive, you should go back to the store you got it from and complain... a little shedding is bound to happen but you don't want so much hair to fall out cause then the net will show a little.

I have not had a wig for many years....I think maybe because Im a guy..and I dont care to maintain it all the time. When I did have my wig(I had 2) I had human hair, but I paid $2200 Cnd. Very little loss but had to go in every two weeks for maintanace.

This happens to almost every wig I get. Some of my wigs have lasted a long time, but every now and then I purchase a wig that doesn't last for more than a couple days. I've never returned them though I've thought about it many times. It's very aggravating.

It falls out, but you should take it back where you bought it and they can add more hair.

Hold the hair strands with one hand closer to the cap while you gently comb DRY wig hair with the other hand, metal tongs only, from tip first, then closer and closer to the cap. You have to hold it or you may pull it out of the cap.

Sometime hair can shed for manufacturing fault. That means hair knots. There are various types of knots and all are not suitable for every type of base cap material.
Excessive hair shedding from your wig can be a problem if you do not properly care for your wig. There are a few maintenance techniques which will help prevent shedding. After washing your unit, allow it to air dry. Another thing that can cause the wig to excessively shed is applying oils or conditioners close to the base of the wig where the knots are. This can cause the knots to loosen and slip when brushing or combing the hair. When applying conditioner to your unit, try to stay clear of the knots at the base. Make sure your hair is complete dryer before combing or brushing. If the hair is not complete dry, combing loosens the knots.
